It was suppose to be our BIG vacation and it was but for this one bump in the road. We were headed out to Malpais and then up the Coast but before we left the State decided not to be in a hurry so we looked up the this place. I saw the review about the place more less being a bump and their website being misleading, god wasn't it the TRUTH. I guess that the biggest disappointment was the distance to the beach, and yes lady I did google map it. Unfortunately Google map does not count for mud roads that climb over vertical mountains that have huge mud holes and dead trees crossing them. Then after the 26 min drive to the closest on the beach was so so so dirty from the garbage that floats down the rivers from San Jose that I would not let my kids out of the car. Rooms do have a/c but that was the only upside to this place. But the good news is that they gave us a refund on the second night that we paid for and was told that they understand. This was still our big vacation and had a great time at other places!!!! Costa Rica is Pura Vida just not this place..........
